FabFree: Writers Block

Hey there Fabulouses!  Today I bring you a little bit of personal news regarding my plans for the new year, the future of Fabulously Free in SL… and of course information on how to pick up this two piece outfit for FREE, because I couldn’t come empty handed!

Let’s start with the outfit (mostly because I am procrastinating sharing my news!)

At Mangula, there is a whole wall full of FREE lucky board prizes, and may of them have been shown here on FabFree before, but you have to keep going back to see the new additions!  I popped in last night and found the Keyla Set that includes the ripped jeans and sweater and voila, my “L” came up!  You are not required to join the group to participate in the lucky boards but there are some nice group gifts with a free group join just beside the luckies too if you are interested in grabbing those.

Sizes Included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya

Get on with it, Love

Ok! Here’s my news…

After much thought and almost 9 years with Fabulously Free in SL, I am announcing that I am retiring from running, and blogging for the organization.  I am stepping down as leader, still with much love for FabFree, for no other reason than after nearly a decade… I’m tired.  For the benefit of FabFree and my sanity (lol), the time has come to pass the torch to a new leader who is fresh, and inspired and eager!

Aline Passiflora has been a dedicated and enthusiastic team member for over two years now, entertaining you with her quick witted writing skills and keen eye for fashionable freebies!  She will be taking on the lead role here at FabFree, and I am very confident that she will do amazing things with it!

What’s next for Love?  I am not entirely sure, but I do know that I will continue posting the photos I so love to make on my flickr feed and will post credits to my personal SLovesadventures Blog.  I might clean my overflowing inventory or explore different areas of interest in Second Life.  Who knows what kind of trouble I might get into with all of this free time.  I can’t wait to find out!

In closing, I just want to thank you all for your readership and support over the years that I have been with this wonderful organization and community.  I am also very thankful for the friendships I have made over the years here with our very hard working writers (past and present), and readers and designers.

Now I’m just getting babbley…  I’m so excited to see what is in store for Fabulously Free in SL, and for myself with these changes.

ps.  Be patient with Aline while she gets things organized in a way that works for her!

*squishy hugs, best wishes, huge thanks and love for all*

Love Trill

FabFree: I don't know about you, but I could use a break after my Christmas break!

Hey there Fabulous Readers! I don’t know about you, but I could use a break after my Christmas break! This whole season is so much fun, and it’s so exciting with all of the events and gifts and gatherings, but wow.. hella exhausting too!  I hope you are all doing ok in this craziness :).  Today in my blog post I am featuring news about The Ricielli Christmas 2019 Hunt and a free 400L group credit at Elise!!

It’s still Christmas at Ricielli

The Christmas boxes for The Ricielli Christmas 2019 Hunt are still out, and you can pick up the items shown in the hunt key below for 15L each in either a copy or a transfer version for gifting.  I am wearing #1 with #7, but there are so many wonderful items, and many of them can be worn after the season is over without looking like Christmas leftovers.   This hunt does not have an end date posted, so if you are interested, get down there quick!

Elise is celebrating the new year, by spoiling their VIPs with 400L worth of instore group credit!  This group is just 5L to join and there are several other group gifts to pick up too.  With my credit, I purchased the Soledad Rings which were 299L, and I still have 101L to spend.  This offer ends tonight, so you don’t have much time!!  Go now!

A petal for your thoughts?

FabFree: A petal for your thoughts?

Hiya Fabulous Readers!  Today in my photo, I’m wearing a lovely dress by Kaithleen’s that I picked up for FREE, and I thought you might like it too!

Joyful in Rose!

The Shop & Hop Event is a breeze to teleport into now that it has been going on for a while and you can direct tp to some of your favourite locations without having to cam for miles and miles from the off sim areas.  Make sure you pop in at the Kaithleen’s display on the Tinseled sim to pick up the free gift box, because it’s the beautiful Joyful Dress in Rose as shown on  my avatar.  This dress comes in sheer and solid and includes a texture HUD that allows you to change the colour of the belt.

If you are shy like me (giggles), the Kaithleen’s Universal Thong that is a free group gift  (50L to join) at the mainstore is compatible and comes in matching colours.

Tiffany for 50L!

Glam Affair is participating in Fifty Linden Friday this week, and it’s still out today if you are interested in the beautiful Tiffany applier for Genus Project in all tones for one super low fee of 50L!  I am not sure how long this will be out as it was a special for yesterday, so hurry!  She is a lovely basic skin for the Classic head that will work beautifully dolled up or down with makeup layers.

Done Baking…

FabFree: Done Baking...

Hey there Fabulouses!  I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season :).  If there is one thing I won’t be touching for the rest of the month, it is a cookie sheet.  I baked WAY too much this year lol… and we all know where it’s going to sit… right on my hips.  Oh well.. It’s the holidays!  I know where to find my stretchy pants.

In my blog post today I am featuring a free group gift by Nerido and a free gift by Izzie’s at Shop & Hop.

She leaves a sparkle wherever she goes

Inworld group members of the Nerido group (199L to join), can head to the store and pick up the beautiful Dina Dress in Winter Ice, with a touch of added sparkle.  Panties are included and this is compatible with Maitreya and Legacy.

The socks are staying on

FabFree: The socks are staying on

Happy Christmas Eve to one and all, and if you aren’t celebrating Christmas, I still wish you a happy eve! Today in my blog post I am featuring news about a free instore group credit at Kaithleen’s (and I’ll tell you about what I picked up), as well as some adorable free holiday socks by Caboodle!

It’s on Kaithleen!

Kaithleen’s has put out a really generous holiday gift for her inworld group members!  VIPs (and it’s only 50L to join if you are not currently a member!) can head to the reception desk and click the credit sign that will load you up with a gift card worth 300L!  You can use it on purchases in the store, or at events!  I picked up the Franzy Bodysuit at Winter Spirit that was priced well under the 300L limit and I still have a fair balance left on the card for future purchases 🙂

I’m not kidding.. the socks stay on

For real…  If I had socks like this in real life, they would stay on, and I mean throughout everything because don’t they look so snuggly and warm and totally adorable too? How could I take them off?   You can pick these Holiday Edition Ballerina Socks as a free gift at the Caboodle Display at Shop & Hop until January 6th.

One spoiled gamer

FabFree: One spoiled gamer

Hey there Fabulouses!  Spoiled has a really sweet free gift at Shop & Hop and I have included it in my outfit today along with a 50L hairstyle by Exile.

Hair… I always start with the hair!

At Exile, you’ll find this Glinting Light Hairstyle in a 5pack, priced at 50L for Wanderlust Weekend.  The pack of colours is a good mix, so I’m sure you’ll find something you like in it.  It has a touch of sparkle, which is really fun for this time of year, but not so much that it can’t be worn anytime of the year either.

Festive Gamer

I know Second Life is filled with gamers (even though I don’t consider SL a game!),  and I thought that you might enjoy this cute free gift by Spoiled at Shop & Hop.  You can pick up the Festive Gamer Headset for free, and it comes with a ton of texture options to match it with your outfits.  My favourite part is the heart microphone, but the bow is ultra cute too.

ps.  Yes, still creating hiding spots for myself determined to survive the holiday season!

Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

FabFree: Wishing you a happy holiday hideaway corner

Hey there Fabulouses!  I don’t know about you, but during the hectic holidays I think it’s a good idea to create a little hideaway from everyone else just for little breaks here and there.  I have created one in SL too, although I am not sure what I am hiding from here!  There is a lot of fun and free stuff in this picture on my avatar, and around it, and I’ll do my best not to get too wordy below and keep it to the point as well as make sure I add in direct TPs to those Shop & Hop locations ;).

My Holiday Look:

  • My outfit today is put together using the Caroline Plaid Skirt in Red that you can pick up at Safira under the Christmas Tree with your group tag activation (50L to join).  It also comes with a chain and leather belt, however, I attached a cat and it fell off…
  • I have paired it up with the Evie Glitter Top available at Shop & Hop as a free gift.  It comes with a HUD that allows you to match the sparkles to whatever you are wearing, and they do… indeed sparkle!
  • My necklace is Cae’s Bauble Necklace and it comes with earrings too and a texture change HUD too.  You can find this at Shop & Hop as a free gift.
  • I’ve got Alaskametro’s Shop & Hop Gift –  Time Square Eyeshadow on my eyes, and it comes in several different colours.  My lipstick has been blogged before, but it’s a free tester called Crimson at the Alaskametro store too, in case you are interested.

 Top Secret Hideaway Corner:

I started this little corner with the Mean Pillows by Lybra available for purchase at Santa Inc. because they cracked me up with sayings like “For Christmas I wish you the best… alone time” and “Christmas is where you are… not”.  After I had those all settled, I added a couple of free gifts and of course the cat and a stack of books:

  • {what next} Chocolate Fudge Layer Cake – Comes with both the cake and the single serving plate decor. – @ Shop & Hop Here
  • Schadenfreude Ornaments in Kore Pedestal Bowl  – Comes with texture options. – @ Shop & Hop Here

After that… all that was left was to hide in it 😀
